Stunning. I usually go for more "traditional" designs, but I feel an exception coming on . . .

cool, I like the sound it makes when it's doing the flat spin. That'll turn some heads at the park

How is the thrust vector system "like no other" though....? I'm pretty sure the Multiplex fun-jet has a 4 axis system (not sure if it's OEM, or an aftermarket mod though).

That said, I think a 4 axis system would have been overkill, the pitch rate already looked pretty extreme to me.

Okay... I like it. It's pretty cool. I kinda want one , but I've been flying the Q since it came out, so is this really different?? I didn't see anything in the video that the Q doesn't do other than the landing gear. Am I missing something?

Still - it looks pretty cool

i thought exactly the same

maybe a Multiplex Fun Jet man, just rubbishing something no one has even seen, touched or flown yet

I think this plane is way above my skill level, but for a good pilot i bet this thing would be a hoot, a 32 motor 4s battery it's gotta move fast

cheers chuck

What do we want? MORE! When do we want it? NOW!

This plane's video shows me that this plane is more about agility than outright speed. That interests me more. I have a 6 cell jet that gets the nod for my speed fix.

I'm just wondering if I can put my Steve Austin Six Million Dollar Man doll in it?


I hope I don't get one and say -
"Pitch is out I can't hold altitude..."
"Flight Comm I can't hold it she's breaking up."

This looks like an awesome plane, but obviously not for everyone.

The price points loses some customers. Not being a speed demon will eliminate some more. Questionable, at this point, operation on grassfields may lose some others.

The Scimitar may find many customers that appreciate it for what it is and are willing to pay the the price. That will largely depend on how the first adopters rate it.
